Feature Suggestion - Distribution Reference Objects
« on: September 18, 2018, 04:44:28 PM »
With the new Forest Pro, comes the relocated and improved Distribution Reference objects option. You can now add multiple distribution objects and you no longer need to reselect and update  in order to regen the forest objects. Great!

Also, you can now have multiple objects as reference objects. Even better!

I now want to suggest that there is a list of reference objects, so that we can see what is being used, and add/remove/disable individual reference objects as needed, instead of having to clear the entire list and re-add.

Hi
Thanks for suggestion added in todo list.

I personally think Remove by picking mode would be best improvement, as You already can pick items by hand and also You can see the full list already.

Am I missing something? All I see there is the number of objects, not a list. See attached image.

True, but it also shows all other objects in the scene. I want a list of just the items used as reference objects so I don't have a huge list to scroll through to see what is being used. Something like the Surfaces list would be better.

Hi, we didn't include an interactive list as in other rollups, because the number of referenced objects may be much higher, compared with Surfaces or Areas.
It would cause a significative performance hit in the in user interface.
